Computer blessings..

Computer Blessings

Every evening
As I'm laying here in bed
This little prayer keeps running
Through my mortal head

God bless my mom and dad
And bless my little child
And take care of my spouse
When things start gettin wild....

And God there's one more thing
I wish that you could do
Hope you don't mind me asking
But PLEASE bless my computer too???

Now I know that it's not normal
To bless a motherboard
But listen just a second
While I explain to you, my Lord

You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends.
Inside those small components
Rest a hundred of my 'BEST FRIENDS'

Some it's true I've never seen
And most I've never met
We've never shaken hands
Or shared a meal as yet...

I know for sure they like me
By the kindnesses that they give
And this little scrap of metal
Is how I travel to where they live.

By faith is how I know them
Much the same as I know you.
I share in what life brings them
From that our friendship grew.

PLEASE take an extra minute
From your duties up above...
To bless this hunk of metal
That's filled with so much love.

This is darling. In fact, I'm going to copy it and send it to all my "outside" friends.
Thanks

  It does not sound weird that you would ask God to bless your computer. Just remember that God sees and hears all of our prayers. I just recently joined the prayer online. So every night when I say my rosary I always include my sparkpeople, I ask God to bless and keep every one safe. emoticon emoticon emoticon

12 steps for addicted webbers.

Thursday, November 20, 2008

1) I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my
newspaper like I used to, before the Web.

2) I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing.

3) I will get dressed before noon.

4) I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes,
and plan dinner before even thinking of the Web.

5) I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate
few friends and family that are Web-deprived.

6) I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact
via the Web.

7) I will read a book...if I still remember how.

8) I will listen to those around me and their needs and stop
telling them to turn the TV down so I can hear the music
on the Web.

9) I will not be tempted during TV commercials to check for email.

10) I will try and get out of the house at least once a week,
if it is necessary or not.

11) I will remember that my bank is not forgiving if I forget
to balance my checkbook because I was too busy on the Web.

12) Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed
sometime ... and the Web will always be there tomorrow!

How cute is that?!? I've read several little "computer addiction" stories but none were as funny as this. However, I must admit, some of them I had no problem relating too! HeHe! Yes, we all must stop once in a while to do the cleaning, but wouldn't it be nice if you could just push a button that says "scan" and have it all done for you?!?

Thanks for sharing!

Mud puddles and yellow Dandelions

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Someone sent me this today. Click on the link below to hear and see the pictures and hear the music. You will love it...May God bless you as this has blessed me...





Big Mud Puddles and Sunny Yellow Dandelions

Author Unknown

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take - but by the moments that take our breath away."


When I look at a patch of dandelions, I see a bunch of weeds that are going to take over my yard.
My kids see flowers for Mom and blowing white fluff you can wish on.



When I look at an old drunk and he smiles at me, I see a smelly, dirty person who probably wants money and I look away.
My kids see someone smiling at them and they smile back.



When I hear music I love, I know I can't carry a tune and don't have much rhythm so I sit self-consciously and listen.
My kids feel the beat and move to it. They sing out the words. If they don't know them, they make up their own.



When I feel wind on my face, I brace myself against it. I feel it messing up my hair and pulling me back when I walk.
My kids close their eyes, spread their arms and fly with it, until they fall to the ground laughing.



When I pray, I say thee and thou and grant me this, give me that.
My kids say, "Hi God! Thanks for my toys and my friends. Please keep the bad dreams away tonight. Sorry, I don't want to go to Heaven yet. I would miss my Mommy and Daddy."



When I see a mud puddle I step around it. I see muddy shoes and dirty carpets.

My kids sit in it. They see dams to build, rivers to cross, and worms to play with.

I wonder if we are given kids to teach or to learn from? No wonder God loves the little children!
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.


I wish you Big Mud Puddles and Sunny Yellow Dandelions!!!

Truer words were never spoken. Don't you just wish we could think like a child again? Maybe there would be more peace in the world!
Thank you for sharing.

My sickness, I'm not in remission anymore

Sunday, November 16, 2008



I am again taking the medicine needed to cure my fat disease. I was in remission with a year's maintenance in sight when I was knocked off track by a medical experience about 5 weeks ago. My mindset was destroyed by what was happening to me that started out as a simple eye operation and ended up with the possible loss of my sight in my right eye. I won't know for a few months if it will come back or not. It was the worst experience ever and at first I had no appetite so I ate sweets until my appetite came back. I began "free feeding" eating for emotional and physical strength. I soon got my appetite back and ate whatever hubby fixed. One month after surgery I am now ready to put all my tips and tricks back to work and start taking off the 10 lbs that I gained. I started with my mindset and started journaling again and drinking my 10 glasses of water. I remembered that to succeed I needed to aim high, think outside the box, keep my mindset positive and to not listen to the voices in my head telling me to eat this, eat that. I know that those voices like to say anything to get me to eat things I shouldn't eat. I managed to keep my calories to 1071 with 75 carbs yesterday and woke up this morning to a one lb loss. My friend, co-leader Cindy was doing a water fast today and I started thinking the same old self defeating thoughts about what if I'm not strong enough to do a water fast and it might be too much stress until I feel better. I finally recognized the voice for what it is, the evil thoughts. At that point I took charge of my thoughts and said to myself, "you can do this" and you know what?? I'm doing it and it's not hard. I'm on my toes to catch any of the usual traps in water fasting. The voice that says it's time to eat (I tell it that it's a no food day) The wandering into the kitchen to check out the refrigerator and the cupboards. (again I repeat, it's a no food day) I listen for my mindset's positive thoughts and comments like "You are in control, you can eat tomorrow, in the morning I'll see a 3-4 lb loss and I won't die if I don't eat today. Then I remember that if I lose 3-4 lbs that I'm well on my way to ridding myself of "those 10 lbs". I remind myself of how confident I'll be because I've taken back the control that food has on me and the feelings of defeat are a memory that has disappeared. Everything starts with a thought that leads to the deeds we do that lead to our future and I'm starting to feel confident again! I can taste success and it tastes good to me... emoticon emoticonOh, yeah, I've started exercising again too. I can do this!

    Hey, we all fall off the wagon every now and then. The important thing is to dust yourself off and get right back on, which you are doing perfectly.

  Hi, Bug!

I'm new here but have found your page and your postings in the forum, an inspiration. I'm so sorry to hear about your surgery problems with your eyesight. That is a scary thing. However, you are doing the right thing...put it all in God's hands. He is an awesome God and he will take care of you. I will also keep you in my prayers. Keep us updated, please.

God bless you.

Isn't the mind a powerful wonder? It can play games on us, take control of our inner being and sometimes just screw everything up completely! However, as you well know, we are stronger. That little brain of ours can really dish out the challenges on a daily bases. As you said, think outside the box and keep your mindset in a positive mode. Glad to hear you've taken control again and wish you much success on your "get healthy" journey.

I sincerely hope you regain your eyesight in your right eye. Take care of yourself and follow the doctor's advise.

Good luck and keep us posted on your recovery.

2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of civilization!

3. Noah built the ark in Iraq

4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq

5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq !

6. Isaac's wife Rebekah is from Nahor, which is in Iraq !

7. Jacob met Rachel in
Iraq

8. Jonah preached in Nineveh - which is in Iraq

9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes of Israel

10. Amos cried out in Iraq !

12. Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq !

16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq ..

17. The wise men were from Iraq .

18. Peter preached in Iraq

19. The 'Empire of Man' described in Revelation is called Babylon , which was a city in Iraq !

And you have probably seen this one: Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible.
But do you know which nation
is second?
It is Iraq !
However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible.

The names used in the Bible are Babylon , Land of Shinar , and Mesopotamia . The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris
And Euphrates Rivers .

The name Iraq , means country with deep roots.

Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible.

No other nation, except Israel , has more history and prophecy associated with it than Iraq

And also, This is something to think about: Since
America is typically represented by an eagle.

Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages ...

The following verse is from the Koran, (the Islamic Bible)

Koran ( 9:11 ) - For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle.. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despai r still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah;
And there was peace.
(Note the verse number!) Hmmmmmmm?!
